Tags: Motherboards NAS / RAID Compatibility Product Last response: February 4, 2010 11:32 PM in Motherboards Share kshef January 27, 2010 11:58:10 PM I was wondering this MB by Asus says it is RAID compatible but does it mean that It has a built in RAID card or do I have to purchase one? I am trying to set up a RAID 0 with 2 1TB HDD so any answers would be much appreciated More about : raid card r_manic a b V Motherboard January 28, 2010 4:41:10 AM Most likely built-in RAID hardware, or software-based RAID functionality.

Max SATA 3Gb/s 7 SATA RAID 0/1/5/10 So, no, you will not need a dedicated hardware RAID controller to put your 1Tb drives on RAID0.
